At the beginning of the year, I sat down and just wrote some random thoughts for 2008...
1. To always have everything I need. Three cheers for this so far! Yay!
2. A successful career, doing what I love. Still LQQKing for a J-O-B.
3. To never have to worry about money. Been worried for half a year but even without a job, I am still here!
4. To be healthy and fit and at my ideal weight. Oops... this one pretty much flew out the window so far, because it is not easy to eat healthy when you have no job, but the year is not over yet so you never know!
5. To replace my worn out clothes, purse, and shoes with nicer ones. Received a second hand suit, purse, & shoes from dress for Success but the purse comes apart & the suit is too hot because it is lined. (I live in Tropical Weather!) What I didn't expect is that one of my silent readers sent me a black purse! That was so sweet. Thank you so much for thinking of moi!! It came in the mail today.
6. To spend more time with family and friends. This hasn't happened physically, because I haven't had the money to go up to see my girls & my grandchildren, but I have spent time with family and friends through phone calls and emails. There has even been some improvement in my relationship with my mother. That alone is a miracle!
7. To win the pending case with the man who is suing me... Never heard from them again after the letter I sent. I assume the matter is closed.
8. More bubble baths, manicures and pedicures. I received a manicure this year when I went to a conference. That was sweet and it was free.
9. To go to Youth Leadership camp this summer. I have been accepted to participate as a volunteer facilitator in August. Will I have a job by then or will I be able to go? That is the question.
10. To get in the ocean this year. I already went into the ocean this year. Yay! Hope to go again before the year is over.
11. For my legs to be strong enough to dance... Still hopeful for this. The year is not over yet.
12. To do something creative... I have learned some tricks in PSP this year and my skills are improving.
I would have to say that, even though I am without a job, I have nothing to complain about, because so far, it has been a very good year for me... I hope that things will continue to get better and that God will continue to provide for me until I can provide for myself... Makes me feel at peace that God is so good & that I can trust Him completely.
P.S... For any reader who is trying to find some 1953 coins for me for my birthday, I have decided to look for them from now until July 2009 because I haven't found any yet! LOL... So please keep checking your coins! Thanx a mil. =.)

A school day that actually went well. What happened? Our homeroom teacher got after Tony and me because she said we were always looking at the clock so she put the clock away. The next day, Tony brought his watch. LOL
The best date you've been on? describe it. The man came to my door with flowers an a bottle of wine. He was very much the gentleman: opening doors, taking out my chair, very attentive. We went to a seafood restaurant where the food was excellent. He brought me home an gave me a good night kiss on the cheek. It was as sweet as the dates you see on TV. Left me on cloud 9. LOL

Possible interview today? Got a message on my phone that people are coming down to the Valley this morning to interview for a position in a town that is about a 30 minute drive from here... My horoscope said to expect to be discouraged. LOL... I am used to rejection, I guess... a glutton for punishment. LOL
Wonder why interviewers like the rush of doing everything at the last minute (little or no notice for an interview), and then, they take their sweet time to make a decision!
Anyways, please pray that I am able to get into my pantyhose! Grrrr @ why do they make them so hard to get into?! I keep visualizing Tootsie. LOL... Stockings and a garter belt were always so much easier and sexy, too. LOL... Good grief @ I have to shave my legs, too! Grrr...
I really wish getting dressed for an interview was an easier task for me. By the time you get all your stuff on, you feel like a stuffed tamale and sit there trying to breathe, which makes you forget what to say in the interview!
So please keep me in your prayers for getting those pantyhose on and for not allowing my mouth to blow the interview!

My friend Bethe sent me a Money Angel, but as you can see, instead of forwarding it, I turned it into a tag. LOL...
I think it needs to be in my Journal... to bring blessings of all kinds to all who come here... Yes, even blessings to the "silent readers" who never leave a comment. LOL... blessings of health, blessings of joy, blessings of peace, blessings of knowledge and understanding, blessings of love, and blessings to supply all of our needs...
It has been raining for about a week already... On Saturday, it wasn't raining when Jones (my car) and I went to Mother's, but as soon as I got on the road, it started pouring cats, dogs, and all kinds of animals with paws! LOL... When I got to her house, I had to park in front, because the road that leads to her house looked very muddy, and I was afraid to get stuck in the mud...
I always worry about her place when it rains a lot, because I am always afraid that her home will sink into the mud, because it stands on blocks.
It was scary coming back from her home that day, because it kept raining and the roads were full of water... I was afraid that Jones was going to get stuck or that his brakes would get wet and leave me stranded with no cell phone and no way to call for help, but through fear and prayer, I made the long trip back to my apartment....
That was only Saturday. It is now Tuesday. I can only imagine how much more water is at Mother's and on the roads... The weatherman says people on the other side of the Valley are having a hard time with all the flooding... but it sounds as if the skies should start clearing up by tomorrow...
Regardless, I still love the rain... for it is God cleansing the earth and pouring His blessings on us...
I am still waiting and expecting my miracle...
P.S. My body keeps fighting against the housekeeping. Bending and reaching continue to be a challenge, but it feels awesome to have a clean kitchen... I wish my whole apartment was decluttered already... Babysteps, Fly Lady! Fifteen minutes at a time!
I found some job leads, but I need to use the computer at the employment center, because my computer cannot pull the applications or print... One day at a time...
